Fuenlabrada vs Real Madrid: In one of the matches of this round of Copa del Rey…
We’ll have the locals of Fuenlabrada hosting the Spanish champions Real Madrid, in a match that pits together two teams from the city of Madrid, played at the Estádio Fernando Torres.
The teams play in very different tiers of Spanish football and theoretically, Real Madrid will be clear favourites to advance onto the next stage of this competition, even considering the fact that they should promote a squad rotation on this 1st leg match of the Copa del Rey.
The home team plays on the Segunda B (third tier of Spanish football), and they are having a good start of the season so far, arriving at this stage of Copa del Rey after eliminating Mérida AD (2-0) and CD Calahorra (1-3), being on an excellent 2nd place in the league and only 2 points behind leaders Deportivo B.
The team is coming from an unbeaten streak that lasts since the first round of this competition.
As for Real Madrid, they are in one of the best moments of form of the season, despite their performances not convincing like they convinced before, in my opinion, namely on the start of the season, when they have beaten Barcelona on the Spanish Supercup for example.
The team hasn’t lost since mid-September and they are coming off a streak of good results, despite many of them being by a slim or moderate margin.
Fuenlabrada vs Real Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Given the difference in potential between both sides and even considering the fact that Zinedine Zidane should promote some rotation in the squad.
I think that Real Madrid will do well in this match and get a win that puts them closer to the next stage of this competition, while also allowing them to rest some players in the 2nd leg of this tie.
This way, I’m going with them to win at half-time.
